Wichita State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
I would highly recommend Wichita State University. It has so much to offer, from student organizations to sports. We have one of the best men's basketball coaches in the United States. My degree was in education and the program offered lots of field experience where I was in the classroom getting hands on experience!! The professors were very helpful and knew our individual needs. I take pride in being a Wichita State University graduate!
My degree program allowed me to meet great leaders in my community. Seeing their passion, and my professors' care for their students inspire me to become an urban sociology professor, contributing my skills to bettering a community through community engagement projects and higher education.
I really enjoyed my time at Wichita State University. The majority of the professors in the School of Art and Design were talented in their own right, as well as, good instructors. They are flexible and understanding, while providing valuable feedback for projects. I did however have a handful of professors who lacked teaching skills and provided criticism without adequate feedback. At least 2 of those professors are no longer at Wichita State. Overall, Wichita State was a positive experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed being a student of Wichita State University. The professors took real interest in the well-being of their students, furthermore, class sizes were limited enough that each teacher could dedicate individual time to their students. WSU is experience a lot of growth right now, and the campus continues to offer newer and better facilities for its students and educators.
Wichita State University is a great place to attend. Situated in Wichita, KS, there are many cooperative education opportunities in your chosen field. The staff is friendly and will work with you as long as you keep them in the know. I have recently returned to WSU pursue an MBA.
The professors and classes were great. However, there was a lack of flexibility in class times and formats offered. It was difficult for me to work a full time job and complete my degree.
I had a wonderful college experience. The campus truly feels like a community - a home. For the most part, I had great instructors who truly connected with their students. I'm proud of the education I received.
A great school for students in the Kansas area. Close to home, plenty of diversity with the large numbers of international students, lots of clubs and organizations to join and lead. Seen as largely a commuter campus but I lived on-campus all 4 years and had an amazing experience and met some of my best friends in the dorms and campus apartments. Lots of emphasis on cooperative education, internships and career services to get students out and exposed to the working world even before they graduate. And now apparently a star basketball school! I wouldn't recommend WSU for out-of-state students, though. This is very much a Kansas university, and Wichita isn't a city that someone who didn't grow up there would enjoy.
I am proud to be a Wichita State Shocker! Growing up in Wichita, Kansas, I always wanted to be a shocker. The experience and quality instruction helped me prepare for my career. I had many professors impact my love for teaching and learning. Becoming a physical educator through Wichita State is valued by many school districts throughout Wichita. During my interview with my current employer, I shared my love for Wichita State and he values my degree as much as I do. I even started my Masters in Counseling program at Wichita State. I could have chosen to go to another university that wasn't as expensive, however, I knew that I would obtain a quality degree!
It was an awesome school built more on experience and networking and creating a great overall. The academics are there, but they more prepare you for life after college than to just get a degree. It was fantastic for commuting and allowed me to be involved in a level I chose.
